Nemanishen (nee Samchek), Helen

Helen Nemanishen, beloved wife of Walter, passed away on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at the age of 74 years, after a tough two-year battle with cancer. A child of the Great Depression, Helen was born New Year’s Day on her parents’ snowbound homestead near Aaron, SK. As a young teen, Helen accepted the Lord at an old-fashioned “Tent Revival Meeting” and was baptized in the chilly waters of the Swan River which flowed past her home near Benito, MB, where she attended High School. Those early roots made her a cheerful and generous Bible-based believer. Mourning her sudden passing is her husband of fifty years Walter; two daughters Carol (grandchildren, Cian, Kevin and Lyndsey) and Gail (husband Lowell Deering and grandsons, Caleb and Tobin). A Celebration of Helen’s life will be held at First Alliance Church (12345 – 40th Street S.E.) on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through In lieu of flowers and sympathy cards, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Mustard Seed Street Ministry, 102 – 11 Avenue S.E., Calgary, AB T2G 0X5 Telephone: (403) 269-1319, or to Mission Aviation Fellowship, P.O.
